    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Zoamelgustar is the name of Martina's patron monster. Martina made up the name.

      • Goof: This is a slight goof on the voice acting of this episode. When Lina stops a fight occuring in the diner she is eating at (because they were disturbing her meal), two of the men get angry at her. Gourry slices their swords in half. However, one of the guy still gets angry with Lina, claiming that SHE was the one who sliced his sword, while it had been Gourry who broke it.

    • QUOTES (16)

      • Martina: That evil witch! Mark my words! In the name of the monstrous Zoamelgustar, I shall have my revenge! But how?

      • Amelia: This is a Dragon Slave Alert!
        Gourry: All citizens please evacuate as quickly as possible!

      • Lina: Now, the way I see it, you've got five choices. One, you can be punished by me. Two, you can be punished by Gourry. Three you can be punished by Amelia. And four, you can be punished by Zelgadis.
        King Moros: And last is that you do it all together?
        Lina: Well, what else? Or... You can offer me some money to forget all about this!
        Gourry: You idiot!

      • Amelia: Miss Lina, you mean you didn't come because you were worried about me and wanted to save me?
        Lina: Well, I suppose that's one way to put it...

      • Gourry: Sorry for the late introduction, but I'm Lina's guardian, Gourry Gabriev.

      • King Moros: Who the hell is this girl?!
        Lina: Although it is a little presumptuous to introduce myself this way, I'm the beautiful, young...
        Gourry: Hey!
        Lina: What is it, Gourry?! I've got a good scene going here!

      • Amelia: Mister Zelgadis?!
        Zelgadis: To think, we would meet again like this... Such is destiny.

      • Martina: Guards, capture this girl!
        King Moros: Uh, I am the king, Martina, so maybe I should...
        Martina: Father! SHUT UP!
        King Moros: Yes, dear.

      • Lina: How many times do I have to explain this, yogurt brain?!
        Gourry: (opens his head up) Wanna taste?
        Lina: No, I don't!

      • King Moros: Lina Inverse?! You mean the walking force of destruction? The natural enemy of all who live?! The girl who leaves wreakage and chaos in her wake?! Lina, the Dragon Spooker...Agh!
        Lina: Give it a rest!

      • Gourry: Zelgadis is what you'd call a real switch-hitter.

      • Amelia: (about Martina) I don't think she's got all her oars in the water.

      • Gourry: Waving that thing around in mixed company is dangerous, pal. Besides, you don't wanna pick a fight with her, she's completely out of her mind!
        Lina: Hey! I heard that, Gourry!

      • Lina: You guys are free to have a fight anywhere you want to, but interfering with an innocent girl's meal is unforgivable. And, if it happens to be Lina Inverse's meal, you're lucky to be alive!

      • Martina: I'm not surprised you haven't heard of him. Zoamelgustar...is a name I made up myself!!
        Lina: LIKE I CARE!!!

      • Lina: Go get 'em big guy!

    • NOTES (4)

      • In the English dub, the closing cast for several episodes are combined.

        Also, all the screenplay writers are combined for the DVD Volume. They are: Katsuhiko Chiba, Jiro Takayama, Norihisa Okamoto, Katsumi Hasegawa, Yasunori Yamada, and Seiko Watanabe. Norihisa Okamoto is not confirmed in the database yet.

      • Enoki Films title: Crisis! Terror of Satanic man

      • This is the last time that Rezo the Red Priest is seen, even though it is as a statue in this episode.

      • At the start of this episode, Lina and Gourry are at an inn stuffing their faces. This is one of the running jokes in Slayers NEXT, most of the episodes either start in, end, or have some inn in them.
